suspension, he is still allowed to play. went 0 for 4 during friday night's game against the detroit tige tigers, so i'm sure that will help his cause quite a bit. >>> finally, imagine if you didn't know you were pregnant until you woke up one day and had a baby. on behalf of this gargantuan belly i'm carrying around, that is unimaginable for people. but apparently not for pandas. zookeepers at edinburgh's zoo say there are, quote, strong indications that its giant panda is pregnant. they don't know for sure. they say she's moody, restless, and difficult. she's pregnant! she was artificially inseminated in april after two failed attempts to mate naturally, even with scientists playing romantic music to get them in the mood and wine and flowers and a heart-shaped tub. i made that last one out. potentially due in a month would be the first giant panda born in the uk. >> you know what the most upsetting fun fact of the panda is? >> talk to me. >> when the baby is born it's the size of a stick of butter. from a panda. >> did not know that. >> don't you love the panda now? >> love the panda. >

the detroit series. what it indicated and showed was alex rodriguez had a hole in his left hip. a torn labrum. he played in the detroit series. didn't play well. was benched. was made a scapegoat. nobody told him he had a hole in his left hip. nobody. it was until after the season was done that he went to his own doctor. >> wouldn't the yankees have wanted to reveal the injury because they have an insurance policy on alex rodriguez. >> yes, unless they wanted to make him a scapegoat. why understand why or the motivation behind it but the doctor did the mri and the digital imagines are in your possession. he said it didn't happen until after the off season t. general manager of this team doesn't know when his players mri was taken. >> this war of words, this war of wills seems to be some sort of a way for alex and baseball to say we can both inflict a lot of damage in this situation. is there a number, 100 games, 80 games, that alex rodriguez would accept right now, take that suspension and make all of this go away. >> that's a great question. i will tell you this, it's a hypothetical, first a

the plane over detroit with the underwear bomber. we've had the attempt to try and destroy a cargo plane with a print cartridge that was created out of a bomb material. so they are active and they really pose the most dangerous threat. >> you know, this caution to americans traveling overseas. it's all well and good, but exactly how are you supposed to conduct yourself? if you're getting on a plane going overseas today or have loved ones overseas, what's the specific advice? >> well, you know, lester, really not a whole lot different than you would normally do. whenever you travel overseas, you're vigilant already. you're going to practice common sense, you're going to be smart about your safety and things like that. if you're going to travel to yemen on vacation, otherwise, most of the places you're going to go, continue to plan what you planned to do. >> is there an overabundance of caution given what happened in benghazi? >> i think we're overrotating a little bit on the benghazi angle based on what i've seen in the press. this is a very traditional threat intelligence stream. the bur
